You did such a fantastic job with our Geography topic last half term. Now, it's time to explore one of our History topics. We are going to focus on a really significant individual this term.
Mary Seacole was a Jamaican woman who showed great kindness to sick and wounded soldiers during the Crimean War.
There are now 3 videos that I would like you to watch. Each video is a different episode about Mary Seacole's life.
I hope you learned a lot about Mary Seacole after watching these three video's.
Have a look at the document below. Your task today is to imagine that you get the chance to interview Mary Seacole. I want you to think really carefully about the questions you might ask her! When it says to ask open questions this means where the answer is not yes or no - where the answer is much longer!
You don't need to print it out - you can draw the speech bubbles or just write the questions in a list!
Write at least 5 questions!

Can I ask questions about Mary Seacole's life?
As an optional extension, look at the quote on the following document. This is a quote that Mary Seacole once said. I would like you to discuss this with an adult at home (as it can be a little tricky to understand) and see if you can decide together what Mary Seacole meant by saying this! Then, have a go at answering the questions underneath!
I can't wait to read how you interpret this quote!
